I covered Pride last weekend for the local organ. Here's some of the more colorful responses from readers:
Oh, it was just so cute of you to interview heterosexual women who say they support homosexuality. I've lived in Georgia for twelve years and these are my observations in regard to how the AJC covers homosexuality: The newspaper is typically full of pictures of male homosexuals. And, they interview female heterosexuals who say they are in support of homosexuals. You virtually never read from heterosexual men saying, "Oh, I'm here to support the homosexuals and I'm so excited." What the AJC does is to try to make males look like they are so important and that females are just so weak. Yes, I definitely see support of homosexuality as weakness. When AIDS was rampant I was so sick of AIDS stricken men running to women to take care of them. I would have said, "Go back to your loverboy and let him take care of you."
We in Atlanta do not feel pride when this sad show comes to town, and we would not miss it if it decided to go to another state, we would then have something to be proud about.
